Can't sleep!

We finally made it back from Dallas and thankfully, the weather was once again cooperative!

The girlfriend has been sick for the past few days, kept awake at night by bouts of coughing fit. She has tried just about all the OTC cough/cold/allergy medication that the drugstore has and still she's not getting better. I urged her to go and see the doctor while we still can afford to, but she didn't think that doctors could do much for her.

Got notification from Texas Workforce Commission and they said that if they do pay me unemployment benefits, it would only be 1/4 of what I made this past year....what assholes!

Right now, neither of us could sleep, maybe we hadn't exercised enough, maybe too much is on our minds,(I've been thinking about the people in Iraq while lying awake), took a tylenol PM but for some reasons, it just hasn't kicked in.

Not being able to sleep and eat well has got to be two of the worst feelings in the world! For a while when I was in Iraq, I wasn't able to do either of both too well, and to this day, I still couldn't figure out why that was. The only good thing that came out of that experience was that I dropped some weight, but I'd rather drop weight the old fashion way, you know?

Going to try and knock on z monster's door again!

Glad you are home safe!

Tell Beth to try a cup of tea with a tsp of ground ginger, and or turmeric. I think some honey to make it more drinkable would be good too. All three open up the throat and sinus crud. It might be a little zippy and unappealing, but the honey also is soothing.
